THE man known as the machine gun preacher,  Sam Childers, is bringing his incredible story to Nambour on Tuesday, November 17.

The former drug dealing, outlaw biker now risks his life to rescue children in Southern Sudan from one of the world's most wanted and vicious terrorists in an area so dangerous that few international aid groups dare enter.

Rev. Childers' story is told in a captivating and inspirational memoir ‘Another Man's War: The True Story of One Man's Battle to Save Children in the Sudan.’

The story tells of Childers' transformation from a violent, drug dealing thug and outlaw biker to a man of faith with a passion for saving the lives of children in Africa.

For the last 12 years Rev. Childers has been battling to rescue children from horrific violence in one of the world's most lawless areas in Sudan.

 A brutal terrorist, Joseph Kony and his rebel army – The Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) have been relentlessly terrorising thousands of innocent people.

 Under Kony's direction the LRA ambushes unsuspecting villages, burns all the houses, then tortures, maims and kills the people.

Around 50,000 children have been captured, enslaved into Kony's rebel army or sold to the slave traders of Northern Sudan. These children are often forced to kill their parents or be killed themselves.

Rev. Childers is on a mission to rescue as many children as he can and put an end to Kony's reign of terror. He fights on the front line of the war zone, at times sleeping in the bush with an AK-47 on one side and a bible on the other.

He's rescued over 1000 children, reuniting 700 of them with their families. Around 300 children live in an orphanage built by Rev. Childers where they are protected and rehabilitated.

Rev. Sam Childers will speak on Tuesday November 17 at The Professional Learning Centre, Burnside State High School, Blaxland Road, Nambour.

 Doors open at 6.30pm for 7.00m start. Admission is $10 and light snacks are available. Bookings essential - phone Liila 5450 6081or email liilaishere@yahoo.com
